Academic and Research Contribution
Dr. Junjappa married his fellow researcher Dr. Ila in 1971 and together they moved to NEHU, Shillong and continued to do research all through their career. Junjappa began his own independent research career at CDRI, Lucknow in the area of synthetic organic chemistry and developed a powerful synthetic chemistry area based on polarized ketene dithioacetals, a class of versatile building blocks, easily accessible from wide range of active methylene compounds and developed new general synthetic methodologies for a large variety of biologically important five and six membered heterocycles. Besides, he has developed a new method for regiospecific construction of substituted and fused aromatic ring from easily accessible acyclic precursors. This discovery, now known as "The Junjappa – Ila(JI) Aromatic and Heteroaromatic Annulation (Review: Progress in Heterocyclic Chemistry, Vol. 13,p.1,2001, Pergamon, New York) provides for the first time new general regiospcific routes for a large variety of substituted and fused polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons starting from benzene, naphthalenes, phenathrene, athracene and their benzo derivatives, part of this discovery is the evolution of (3+3) annulation to the general synthesis of biologically important benzoheterocycles.
Other Contributions:
Over 60 students have received Ph.D. degree under his supervision; Prof Junjappa and Prof Ila together published more than 220 papers in international journals; Prof Junjappa delivered R.C.Shah memorial lecture (1995). T.R.Sheshadri Memorial lecture(1996), 4th Dr. Sukh Dev Endowment lecture (1996); visiting professor, Iberdrola National Foundation, Savilla, Spain (1999).
